    Bit sad, thought he had potential but being honest he is having trouble ousting the backrowers currently ahead of him so all things considered shouldn’t hurt us. Wish him well.

    He had his best game of the year last game - probably trying to impress someone interested in him.

    Hope he does well somewhere. He's got a few players in front of him here so hopefully he gets a decent opportunity wherever he goes.

    so we now have 2 positions to fill in the next week.
    We have to have 30 players signed by July 1.

    He’s signed with the Titans.

    I never really rated him. So don’t see it as too big a loss, especially with Fermor coming through.

    Plenty of our juniors we can promote, which is pleasing. Maybe Fermor and Musgrove perhaps? Developmental players could be Crossland, Toa, Hoy, Randall, Cooper and Momoisea (as a guess).

    I really don't know what happened to Sam???:shrug::(
    I had a really big wrap on him, I hope a change of scenery helps him reach his potential.

    Nothing happened to him. He's 21 and developing nicely.
    He spent most of this year trying to develop into a middle forward, which I don't think was much good for him, but when he played second row for 80 minutes last game, he was one of the best 2 or 3 on field in a game where we nearly beat one of the top sides.
    It won't surprize me if he plays firstgrade for the titans very soon.

    Wish Sam well, but yeah he had a few blokes in front of him and a few that seemed to have jumped him in the queue.

    Probably good for both parties.

    I reckon we'd release Zac Woolford, Tautau Moga and maybe Brodie Jones if anyone wanted them.

    Yeah but we have a first grade squad and a big budget and they have Garth Brennan and a million dollar halfback who is Darius Boyd Mark 2 without Wayne Bennett's sons talent(remembering Wayne's son won a Clive Churchill)
